Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am

UC Berkeley Art Museum Pacific Film Archive

Pulitzer- and Nobel Peace Prize–winning author Toni Morrison recalls her life, challenges, and successes in this "eloquent nonfiction biopic" (Variety), featuring archival footage and interviews with Oprah Winfrey, Angela Davis, Hilton Als, and others.


This is what SF/Arts curator Sura Wood has to say about Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am :

Sage, defiant, tough-minded and eloquent, Toni Morrison’s words and memories dominate an admiring portrait that skillfully weaves African American art and jazz, Morrison’s fierce poetry and unflinching reflections on race, and commen-tary by friends such as Fran Lebowitz and Hilton Als into one of the best docs of the year. This fitting tribute to the trailblazing novelist and literary editor was re-leased shortly before her death in August.
